This was my first attempt @ a homemade pie crust & it came out delicious, buttery and flakey...just like my moms crust that's shees been making since I can remember. I used my kitchen aid stand mixer to make this since I don't have a food processor or pastry cutter and honestly, don't want to take the time/effort to cut the butter in with a fork. (I make my scones the same way!) I just froze my butter for about 30min, sliced it thin & then added it with all the ingredients except water in mt KA bowl. I mixed it on the lowest setting for a few minutes, until there were pea sized, or smaller, crumbs. Then I slowly poured in slightly less than 1/4cup of super cold water (still on the lowest speed) just until a dough barely started to form. Then I shaped it into a ball, wrapped in plastic wrap, and froze for about 30 min before I rolled it out. I froze it again once I got it into my pie plate, before I added my filling and baked it. it came out perfect. Even the extra scraps that I dusted with cinnamon/sugar and baked came out flakey without being refridgerated or frozen before going into the oven. This will be my go to recipe, I love it!
